George Psalmanazar (c.1679-1763), a Frenchman, passed himself off as the first visitor to Europe from Taiwan, even speaking an invented language. He assumed the name of 'George Psalmanazar' when he 'converted' to Christianity in 1702. Coming to London, he switched to Anglicanism and wrote ''An Historical and Geographical Description of Formosa, an Island subject to the Emperor of Japan'' in 1704. After confessing the imposture in 1706 he went straight, learning Hebrew and co-authoring Samuel Palmer's 'A General History of Printing' (1732). He even contributed to A Complete System of Geography and wrote about the real conditions in Formosa, pointedly criticising the hoax he himself had perpetrated. In later life he became a friend of Samuel Johnson and wrote his autobiography, although even this did not reveal his real name.

Within two years she had taken over sixty Federal prizes before being sunk off the coast of France. In 1869 the US brought a claim for damages against Britain, seeking compensation for the damage done by ships built in this country. The original demand was for either $2 billion or the ceding of Canada to the United States but, after international arbitration, the case. was settled for $15.5 million. Despite admitting the release of the ship was a mistake, Russell obstinately refused to accept Britain should pay damages.

[Etched c.1754, but on wove paper watermarked 1812.]
Etching. 205 x 160mm (8 x 6½") very large margins.
An 18-year-old London maidservant called Elizabeth Canning claimed to have been kidnapped on New Year's Day and held for a month, in a brothel in Enfield. She accused `Mother Wells', the madam of the establishment, of trying to force her to become a prostitute. A hideous gypsy crone staying in the house, Mary Squires, cut off the girl's stays (worth 10 shillings), and Elizabeth was imprisoned in an attic with only a few crusts of bread and a jug of water to live on. On January 29th she escaped through a window and walked all the way back to her mother's house in the City. Squires and Wells were apprehended, and tried at the Old Bailey; the former was condemned to be hanged, and the latter was burned in the hand and imprisoned. However opinion turned against Canning and new evidence led her to be charged with perjury and transported for seven years.
